Belgian firm NHV Group has clinched a contract to provide crew transfer services for Neptune Energy’s Seagull project in the North Sea.
In line with the eighteen month deal, NHV will fly workers from Aberdeen to Valaris’ Gorilla VI drilling rig aboard Airbus H175 aircraft.
Drilling operations kicked off last week.
NHV started operating out of Aberdeen at the beginning of 2016 and announced the opening of a new hangar, apron and passenger handling facilities in October 2016.
NHV base manager Jamie John said: “We are delighted that Neptune Energy has decided to partner with NHV.
“This new contract again allows us to showcase our safe, reliable, and efficient H175 services.
“The Seagull passengers will benefit from our state-of-the-art handling facility, whilst experiencing the comfort and safety features of the H175.
“We look forward to building a genuine and reliable partnership with Neptune Energy and are eager to start flying on their behalf.”
Neptune is the operator of Seagull and has a 35% equity interest. Its joint venture partners are BP with 50% and Japex with%.
